Dear Ebby Family,

It is with great sadness that we write to inform you that Ebby, our beloved founder, passed away last night. She died peacefully at home from natural causes. While we certainly grieve the loss of Ebby, we celebrate a long life well lived. Each of us who had the good fortune of knowing Ebby has been touched by the grace, fortitude and compassion with which she lived her life. As you know, Ebby had a very simple saying that she lived by, ‘Do something for someone every day.’ That small bit of wisdom served Ebby very, very well and she left the world a better place than she found it.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to one of the causes Ebby was most passionate about: Ebby’s Place at the YW, The Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities, Happy Hill Farm and Academy, or the charity of your choice. We will share information on how to make donations soon.

Memorial service details will be forthcoming.

Mary Frances and Ron

About this photo: Dallas photographer extraordinaire Danny Piassick sent me a message as soon as our post went up. “Years ago, I ran into her male assistant, who’s name I can not remember. He told me that Ebby mentioned to him that she wanted this image to be used for her obituary. I thought that was a nice thing to say!”
